About this title:

Synopsis: Finally a positive book about native schools. Written by Dorothy Matheson McIvor, the granddaughter of Princess Elizabeth Deeks of the Tsimshean Tribe of Port Simpson. The book chronicles her time at Coqualeetza Residential School in Saris B.C. which was the largest Protestant Indian School in Canada. Dorothy writes from her earliest childhood memories to her graduation and beyond. She reflects on some of the local history of the Fraser Valley and the Pacific Coast. Dorothy also gives us an insight to the Native lifestyle in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

She is a living example of the successful era of the native residential school.
